After one-year hiatus BC's Sonora Resort reopens June 1

The acclaimed wilderness retreat welcomes guests back for the 2021 season

Last week, B.C. wilderness retreat Sonora Resort announced that after being forced to close for the entirety of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 restrictions, it will officially resume operations on June 1. 

Located on the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest and only accessible by way of helicopter, seaplane, or boat, Sonora Resort offers visitors a true escape through a range of luxury activities and amenities. In addition to award-winning West Coast cuisine from Tyee Dining Room chef Justine Smith, visitors are able to personalize their getaway package with unique experiences such as guided salmon fishing, eco-tours, helicopter glacier adventures, and much more.

“After the extremely difficult decision not to open in 2020, we have worked very hard to establish all necessary health and safety protocols to safely re-open June 1, 2021,” says Sean Ross, president and COO of Sonora Resort. “It is with great delight and eagerness we welcome back guests who will have the ability to enjoy all of the incredible amenities.”

While Sonora Resort has reduced its total allotted capacity from 88 rooms to 43, both of its private standalone villas, Eagle Rock and Sea Lion, will be available for occupancy. Additionally, guests will now be able to hold their booking with no penalty or deposit required.  

“We understand travel planning habits and considerations have changed in 2021, and so our policies have been created with our guests’ well-being in mind,” adds Ross. “This summer is definitely an opportunity for locals to experience their own backyard. Perhaps you’re travelling solo, for an anniversary, birthday or significant milestone, there truly is no other place quite like the magic guests experience on Sonora Island at Sonora Resort.”

Sonora Resort's personalized getaway packages can be booked online.
